Community Public Art Program
The Richmond Community Public Art Program supports art projects between community groups and artists of all disciplines. Artists and communities working collaboratively can explore issues,ideas and concerns, voice community identity, express historical and cultural spirit and create dialogue through art.
Much of the Public Art program is supported by the Community Public Art Program including; Engaging Artists in Community, Art Columns, the Community Mural program, City Utility Cabinet Wrap Program, Sewer Access Covers, Pianos on the Street, Arts Education and Tours.
Community Public Art Projects proposed must be publicly accessible and located or performed on public property such as City parks, boulevards, and buildings. Projects should demonstrate the support of the local community, community partners and engage the public significantly.
The end product need not be a permanent work of art but should leave a legacy for the general Community. Public art projects will be funded in part or in whole from the Public Art Program Reserve. The Public Art Program Reserve is funds from Private Developer Contribution program.
